Giving to the History Department

What Your Support Means to Us

Your support transforms the future of our students and inspires our department. More than ever, the generosity of our alumni and friends is needed to help us enhance our academic programs and to sustain path-breaking research. We ask you to join us in our mission.

For many years, our faculty has had a distinguished international reputation in the fields of European and United States history, with an emphasis on medieval and early modern Europe and the American South. In the 1990s, we began expanding our range and our faculty. Latin America was added as an area for graduate work in 1991, Africa in 1993, Asia in 2007.

Recent years have also witnessed our graduate program’s expansion into Jewish History and Ancient History. We offer rigorous and engaged historical study – at both the graduate and undergraduate levels—as we build on our valued tradition of excellence.  

We are very grateful for your generosity and encouragement.
